Derek BlanksR&B singer Brandy stepped into the studio with her 18-year-old daughter, Sy’rai for their empowering duet “High Heels.”
It was a “fun” and “exciting” experience for the proud mom to see her daughter tap into her creativity as a young artist, just like Brandy once was.
“[It was] so exciting just to hear what she can do in the booth and how quick she is, and how her musicality is,” Brandy revealed to Rolling Stone. “She’s just so talented. I love the way our voices sound together. I love the way we blend…so many different harmonies.”
“I had a good time with her and I want to continue to do music with her,” she continued. “I think that she’s just growing to be an incredible young artist and I’m just here for it. I want to watch her grow and be here for her every step of the way.”
“High Heels” reels from Brandy’s new album, B7, under her imprint, Brand Nu Entertainment label. She said it was “therapeutic” to have creative control this time around — noting she co-wrote and co-produced the entire album.
“I just felt so free just being able to just use music as a way to just purge,” Brandy shared. “I was so vulnerable, and hearing the songs back, I feel the honesty. I feel like it’s really me, it’s really who I am. It feels good to give in this way, in my own truth.”
